Hubby and I have had a fabulous 5 night stay here recently. Great location. Friendly/ helpful hosts. Comfortable beds. Our unit was SPOTLESS. Would certainly recommend this Motel and we have already spread the word

Room Tip: It is on a busy road but certainly wasn’t noisy.. couldn’t hear a thing from nextdoor unit
Stayed: November 2017, travelled as a couple

Thank you very much for the review. When we took over this motel we very quickly learnt to listen to our housekeepers. We have a total team effort to keep the motel clean and are always trying to improve.

Studio unit with King-size bed, quality lounge chairs, petite kitchenette with all necessary items and bathroom with thoughtful range of shampoos,soaps and beautiful quality towels. Free morning paper is delivered to unit. The very pleasant and extremely competent owners are very helpful and run an excellent well organised motel.. Abode is on a busy street but is very handy to supermarkets and well known fast-food outlets and yet only a short stroll to downtown amenities and the beautiful Pukekura Park and seafront

Great location for New Plymouth. Most of the resturants are a few minutes walk away. Were concerned when we arrived as motel on busy street but wasn't as noisy as we feared. We had the two bed apart. Very spacious and clean. Bathroom very big as well. Ideal for families.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with family

Very welcoming owners and well appointed and very clean motel
But the wake up from the traffic on the three lane road outside was more than dreadful on a Friday morning from 5.30am.
In unit 2 it was like you were on the road. Perhaps units further away from the road would be better.

Thank you for your review Linda and we appreciate all the feedback. We understand your feelings about the noise and when ever possible, we put guests further away from the road. However, we do have four rooms that are close to the road, which we do have to use when we are very busy obviously. We do provide medical ear plugs in those rooms. We have now been here for a year and we are endeavouring to find solutions for this issue for these four rooms. However, it is fair to say we have guests who prefer these rooms, because they are used to inner city living.

My friend and I travelled to New Plymouth to attend a conference.
Abode on Courtenay is situated conveniently close to shops and several restaurants
It is not far from the waterfront which has lovely views.
The room was cleaned thoroughly each day, beds were comfy and shower very easy to manage ( not always the case in hotels)
The manager, Ian went out of his way to make us welcome and was very helpful indeed.
Highly recommend
